Mars in Capricorn Transit
When Mars moves through the sign of Capricorn for the next six weeks, Martian energy is grounded in making and executing solid plans. Capricorn’s ruler is Saturn which is known in astrology as the taskmaster. This is an excellent time to sit down and create a concrete plan for our lives and then actually take the steps to make it a reality in the physical world. Due to Mars being in an earth sign such as Capricorn, this particular Mars expression is geared towards creating something concrete that can be experienced in the physical world. This is not the energy of merely talking the talk or daydreaming. Mars in Capricorn is asking us to walk our walk. It’s time to get ambitious and know that if we put in the effort, Mars in Capricorn will lead us to great achievements in all areas of our lives…especially in the areas of work and career as Capricorn rules the energy of achievements that are seen in the outside world.Read More »
There are two major planetary interactions from Mars in Capricorn to Jupiter as well as a stellium in Capricorn in early March that will really help us harness the energy of Mars in Capricorn for our benefit. The first positive planetary interaction is Mars in Capricorn forming a positive workable sextile with Jupiter in Pisces from February 3rd to February 5th. With Jupiter in Pisces, there is already this energy of making dreams a reality as Pisces rules the dream world. The added earthy, movable energy of Mars in Capricorn, provides the concrete action to take those dreams from the realm of the otherworldly into the here and now of reality. Fortunately, with Mars in Capricorn, this will be done in a constructive, grounded manner which helps because Pisces energy does well with a bit of grounding. So, this is great energy if you really want to create a plan for your dream life and take the steps to make your dreams real.
On March 3rd, there will be a stellium with Mars, Venus, and Pluto in the sign of Capricorn. If we’re willing to work hard to put our plans into motion, this stellium can take us to the next level. For reference, a stellium in astrology is when three or more planets are sitting together or conjunct in the same sign. So, Mars in Capricorn will also be transiting with Venus and Pluto in the sign of Capricorn.
Venus and Pluto rule money, power, relationships, and control. With the added energy of Mars in Capricorn, this can boost our ability to use our innate powerful energies to create the circumstances that we desire. This stellium will definitely be intense because of the addition of Pluto. No worries, though as this Mars, Venus, and Pluto stellium in Capricorn makes it possible for us to achieve what we desire if we are willing to put in the hard work and take some chances. With all of this Capricorn energy, it is important to stay grounded in reality so that we are able to get what we want and make our plans and ambitions possible at this time.
It is important to note that there is a period where it may be best to just focus on the planning s instead of execution. Mercury is still retrograde and it will be moving retrograde into the sign of Capricorn on January 25th. This may not be the best time to make new plans, but we can still harness the energy of Mars in Capricorn along with the energy of Mercury moving retrograde in the sign of Capricorn to wrap up some loose ends on projects that we have already started. So, if we have been slacking on previously executed plans, the addition of Mars in Capricorn with Mercury retrograde in the sign of Capricorn is an added boost to wrap up what we have already started while also creating blueprints for new plans to be executed once Mercury goes direct in the sign of Capricorn on February 4, 2022.
Mars At Its Best in Capricorn
One of the main reasons that the Mars in Capricorn transit is particularly important and special is because Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn. In astrology, exaltation is experienced when a planet is placed in a sign where it operates at its best. Given that Mars energy is focused on taking action, there is truly no better sign than Capricorn for the expression of Mars. Additionally, Mars traditionally rules the sign of Aries which is known for its fiery energy. However, Mars in its purest form can be rash, and while it is great at starting things, it does not bode well for completion. However, with Mars in Capricorn, there is the energy of Saturn that provides the grounded, accountable, and responsible energy that is not usually associated with pure Martian energy. Capricorn’s placement in Mars provides the concrete plans as well as the solid execution and the ambition and drive to see projects through to their completion which is why Mars is exalted in the sign of Capricorn.
So, let’s take advantage of this energy because it’s definitely here to help us finish up all of those projects that we’ve been neglecting as well as formulate the blueprints for our new plans in a solid, executable manner.
Let Your Ambition Motivate You
In general, Mars energy focuses on what motivates us. Now is a great time to consider our personal and professional motivations to use the energy of Capricorn to make them a reality. Even if our ambitions seem a bit far-fetched, there’s nothing to worry about because the energy of Mars in Capricorn will help us take a practical, grounded, and steady approach to getting what we want. Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, has a way of setting limitations and blocks to let us know that adjustments need to be made. Consider this a “reality check” associated with Mars in Capricorn that helps us understand that we can get what we want, but we will definitely have to put in the work to do so. If we are willing to work hard at this time, those ambitions have the potential to become reality under this six-week Mars in Capricorn transit.
Serious Moves in Sex & Love
Mars energy also governs our sexual drive which relates to relationships. Mars in Capricorn is likely to be serious about any type of sexual and romantic relationship at this time. If we’ve been on the fence about taking things to the next level, Mars in Capricorn is just the energy needed to finally obtain clarity. In general, Capricorn energy doesn’t really do flimsy encounters. Capricorn energy is quite traditional and wants and seeks partnerships that can stand the test of time. Thus, the energy of Mars in Capricorn could find us wanting to make our sexual and romantic relationships serious where we see ourselves planning a life with someone.
However, there is also the possibility that this Mars in Capricorn transit will reveal to us that the people we are dealing with in our sexual and romantic relationships aren’t up to par in terms of our own personal standards which could result in us making the decision to end relationships that don’t have the potential for long-term growth.
Get to Work!
One of the most important aspects of Mars in Capricorn is the ability and willingness to take personal accountability and responsibility. Capricorn is ruled by the sign of Saturn, and it is known for its tendency to work long and hard to get to where it wants to be. This is not a transit for sitting around and just thinking and talking about what we plan on doing. Mars in Capricorn is best executed when we make plans and actually put our feet to the ground and get moving. Those who are willing to put in hard work could potentially experience great achievements as the Saturn energy of Capricorn gives us what we have EARNED. Don’t expect anything to just fall into our laps at this time. Let’s get to work and make the most of this Mars in Capricorn transit!
A Minor Precaution
As with any planetary placement, there are precautions related to the energy of Mars in Capricorn. Capricorn energy can be a workhorse. This is the energy of working long hard hours to achieve our goals and ambitions. There’s nothing wrong with this as long as we don’t become workaholics…which Capricorn is known for being. It is important to balance the energy of Mars in Capricorn with self-care. In fact, Capricorn’s opposite sign Cancer offers us guidance on caring for ourselves and our roots. So, for the next six weeks make sure to plan some time to take care of ourselves and to also connect with one’s home, family, and roots. Mars in Capricorn can make us so focused on achieving things in the outside world that if we don’t have that balance, we can end up neglecting ourselves as well as those closest to us.
So, let’s do our best to balance the hard-working energy of Mars in Capricorn with periods of self-care so we don’t burn out on our way to making our ambitious plans a reality. Now…get to work!
